Global-Golf4-Cancer

"Ensanguining the skies, so heavily it dies, into the West away"   A E Housman

GG4C's Mission and Purpose
The concept of 'Global Golf 4 Cancer' was conceived by our sister organisation, Global-Golf-Links, and was established with a simple objective: to harness the power of golf in the fight against cancer. The game of golf is a truly global phenomenon that knows no borders ... and unfortunately the same can be said of cancer.

The campaigns and events we organise are intended to raise awareness of GG4C and inspire fundraising from within the golfing community. With the support of golfers and the golf industry we can help fund a variety of cancer-fighting initiatives and provide assistance to various cancer charities located in diverse countries on every continent.

Why the '4 theme' and why a special '4-Flag' on the 4th hole? 
The idea emanates from the sad fact that, today, one in four of us is likely to be affected by cancer during our lifetime. And from par fours, to fourballs and foursomes (never mind shouting fore!), '4' is perhaps the most significant number in golf.

Every 9-hole and every 18-hole golf course has a 4th hole with a pin or flag in it - one that we aim at and interact with as we play the hole. The flag is a beacon and a banner; and in our campaigns 'flying the 4-flag' is emblematic of what we are striving to inspire: global golf 4 cancer.
